Welcome to RestoreYourEconomy.org
Funded by the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA), RestoreYourEconomy.org provides resources and best practice information for public and private stakeholders seeking to rebuild their local economies after a disaster as well as assisting the business community in preparing for a disaster. It is a one-stop shop of disaster preparedness, post-disaster economic recovery, and disaster resiliency resources, tools, event announcements as well as opportunities to connect with peers through social media groups. The site exposes readers to the critical issues and challenges, highlights lessons learned in the response and recovery process, as well as suggests resources and best practices to use in restoring the local economy after a disaster. This includes articles, whitepapers, presentations, briefings, documents, website links, and other relevant resources to assist your community in the disaster preparedness or recovery process.
RestoreYourEconomy.org is managed and regularly updated by Delaney Luna at the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) in cooperation with the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA).
